SENTIMENTALITY
[ Also see Sentiment ]

The barrenest of all mortals is the sentimentalist.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The Sentimentalist, roughly speaking, is the man who wants to eat his cake and have it. He has no sense of honor about ideas; he will not see that one must pay for an idea as well as for anything else. He will have them all at once in one wild intellectual harem, no matter how much they quarrel and contradict each other.
      - Gilbert Keith Chesterton,
        Alarms and Discussions

The world is neither wise nor just, but it takes up for its folly and injustice by being damnably sentimental.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley,
        in a letter to Tyndall

The world makes up for all its follies and injustices by being damnably sentimental.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

Experience proves that none is so cruel as the disillusioned sentimentalist.
      - William Ralph Inge

Sentimentality is unearned emotion.
      - James Joyce

Sentimentality is a superstructure covering brutality.
      - Carl Gustav Jung

What we mean by sentimentalism is that state in which a man speaks deep and true sentiments not because he feels them strongly, but because he perceives that they are beautiful, and that it is touching and fine to say them,--things which he fain would feel, and fancies that he does feel.
      - Frederick William Robertson
